nuclear more than us. the people in saudi arabia, and egypt, jordan, so for that matter i think we will have to take action. and if the u.s. would decide to sit idly by and watch and to pray in order to take action, israel will have to do it by itself. it will not be easy. it will be harder. to deal with retaliation not only from iran. they will be nation's flying in from iran, from lebanon, hezbollah will join. hamas in gaza will send hundreds of missiles. but if we have to choose today between the option of allowing iran to become nuclear, to the option of fighting ourselves, i think the is a clear message what we will do. and the question is if will do with the u.s. or without the u.s., we are asking today. one of the main points of my book, i know many people here are involved with the middle east is the issue of two-state solution. for the last 20 years we hear about two-state solution. you must finish the conflict, the resolution will be a palestinian state. and president obama adopted this approach and she's calling upon us, the israelis to build a palestinian state and go b
, in a speech with barbara jordan. >> host: did that hurt him? >> guest: no, because at that time he had stepped down as the anchor manin' 1981. he played mr. objective quite bell, and if you go to a doctor and are getting surgery you don't care if the doctor is a democrat or republican, but when he came out and voiced some disseptember own the vietnam war, it was the beginning of him editorializing, and today we see people in television who are editorializing all the time, and that's a slippery slope we're on now. and also, you see, with cronkite the berth of celebrities and television. where cronkite would go to a rally with senators and people running for president, everybody bum rushed them. they wanted to meet cop cite, not a senator from wisconsin. >> host: how would you describe him as a private person? >> guest: a lot of fun. he could not stand pompous people. at parties he would trunk a lot, sing old time songs, sometimes take part in a strange kind of strip tease act just to get people to crack up. but that's why -- i interviewed so many different people, from his good friends on he le
this should do the collected works. he wrote a column. .. of course you have the airport. barbara jordan did an event in 1988. right after michael dukakis boss to the george herbert walker bush. and cronkite was great friends with george herbert walker bush, personal friends, but he was for dukakis as a liberal. he was livid that dukakis avoided the word liberal as if it was a dirty word fifth. he thought that democrats were cowards, not defending liberalism of harry truman or the kennedys or whatever, fdr. and so at a barbara jordan speech, which you can pull up one youtube, it's unbelievable to watch, i think he had a little bit of scutcheon him.

't want to annex the palestinian towns. i think they belong, they should be connected into jordan and egypt. and yes, it will not happen tomorrow. we will have to wait. how long we'll have to wait, i don't know. if i came here to washington, d.c. two years ago i would've told you the president mubarak would be caged in jail in cairo, you would think i'm insane. and to them, coming and telling you in the long term there should be a linkage between the palestinians and -- you with tell it's not going to happen, they would not agree to it. the middle east history dynamic, can change very fast, and we have to put forward what we believe is good for us. >> i fear for israel's security and future. i see that as dangerous. and it's also a moral issue, but thank you. >> thank you. >> my name is jerry. actually i was in jerusalem in 1973 when the war broke out, and all the european nations made a big point of saying, we are not going to send any weapons to the middle east because we don't want to encourage the war that's just started. which sounded very noble, except at the same time the r
